News from AllianceQ: February 2019

We Remember Bob Glover

With heavy hearts we report the passing of Bob Glover, a friend of LGBTQ people in the Christian Church and of the Alliance since its earliest days.

Rev. Dr. Judith Wray, one of the first Council Members and Moderators of the Alliance, upon sharing the news with us, couldn’t help but remind us that “We have lost a dear friend!!” And Rev. Dan Adolphson, immediate past Moderator of the Alliance, also sending us the news, shared that “We have indeed lost not only a dear friend, but a fierce defender of the Alliance in some of the darker moments of our history.”

Do you have a story about Bob? Can you share us some of the history that Bob represents? Please write us a few sentences or a few paragraphs and we will compile those in memory of Bob. Send them to Mark Johnston at

You can find a link to Downey Avenue Christian Church’s obituary for Bob on their Facebook page, linked below, and also in their newsletter.
